Palestinian Islamic scholar Mraweh Nassar, the Secretary-General of the Jerusalem Committee of the International Union of Muslims Scholars, said in a March 22, 2022 interview on the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Arabic-language Channel 9 (Turkey) that the war in Ukraine was instigated by the Jews in order to establish a Jewish state there to replace Israel. He explained that the Jews have been forsaken by America and the West, who have come to realize that the Zionist project is a failure that will come to an end within two years. He elaborated that the Israelis have thus realigned with Russia and China.
In addition, Nassar said that the Jews have been "convinced that Palestine cannot be the state for the Jews" and now claim that Ukraine is a Jewish state and that the Temple and biblical Jerusalem are, in fact, located there. Nassar also spoke about the "false Holocaust," saying that there weren't nearly as many Jews killed by the Germans as people claim. He also claimed that it was Jews who forsook the German Jews in WWII, much like they are forsaking Ukrainian Jews today.

Mraweh Nassar: "The [Israelis] understand nothing but force. If the security of their state depends on aligning with Russia, or at least being neutral, they will do this even if it means sacrificing the [Ukrainian] Jews.
"Even in the false Holocaust... There is a book written by a Jew, which asks 'Who killed the Jews?' They were offered to take the Jews for five dollars each. They took one look, saw that most of them were old, and said: 'We don't want them.' A Jew wrote this book and said: 'We killed the Jews' — that is what he means — 'because we refused to accept 100,000 or 200,000 Jews who were in Germany, in exchange for a handful of dollars.'
"They only wanted young people. They did not want the old.
"[The Israelis] have turned to the East. They now want Russia and China because America has forsaken them. [America] told them in short: Your [Zionist] project is a failure, and you are bound to come to an end — if not this year, then the next. The Americans understand that they are supporting a failed project, so [the Israelis] are looking for an alternative, which can be Russia or [China].
"So they would not destroy their relations with Russia or [China] over a handful of Jews. As far as they were concerned, those [Ukrainian] Jews can go to Hell.
"Even the Jews themselves, including Lieberman and Netanyahu, are now convinced that Palestine cannot be the state for the Jews. So they started saying that holy Jerusalem is in Ukraine and not in Palestine. Ukraine is now the candidate to become the future Jewish state.
"Perhaps one of the reasons they instigated this war was to empty out Ukraine.
"The West is now convinced that the [Jewish] state is doomed, that the [Zionist] enterprise has failed. What is the solution, then? That Israel will be adopted by Russia and China instead of by the West, or that there will be an alternative [state]. The whole world knows about the Jewish state in eastern Ukraine. I remembered that there were 43,000 [Jews] there, but now they say 200,000.
"It is an independent state, and they did not want to spread the word about it, so they would not be told to go there rather than come to Palestine.
"Why did the Holocaust really happen? Leave aside everything that is being said. During World War II, some of the Jews joined the Americans and the West, and others joined Germany. They said: If the Germans win, we are with Germany, and if the West wins, we are with the West. Hitler found out that there were [Jewish] spies, so he killed some of them - it was not hundreds of thousands like they say. These are all lies.
"They are now saying that the Temple and biblical Jerusalem are located in Ukraine and not in Palestine. If this does not work, tomorrow they might say that they are in the Netherlands."
